Aston Villa missed out on the chance to climb into a Champions League spot following their 1-1 draw against Blackburn.

Scott Carson saved a first-half penalty from Rovers midfielder Matt Derbyshire before Roque Santa Cruz put the visitors ahead after 67 minutes with his 11th league goal of the campaign.

But Ashley Young, Villa´s most dangerous player, levelled six minutes later with a stunning 20-yard free-kick.
